Scientist-photographer Nic Bishop offers a
fascinating large-size picture book that provides
fun and astonishing facts about the physical
characteristics, senses, behaviors, habitat and
life cycles of various types of spiders. Young
readers will learn to recognize the difference
between spiders and insects, and will be
intrigued by the more than 38,000 types that
still exist. Bishop's photo-rich pages feature
large, highly magnified close-ups of vibrantly
colored spiders, and even include a foldout
spread of a jumping spider's leap that is 20
times its body length!
This tale centers on a challenge that the noisy
fifth grade boys of Laketon Elementary School
propose to the equally loud fifth grade girls --
a "no talking" contest. After reading about
Ghandi for a school report and listening to the
mindless chatter of classmate Lynsey Burges,
self-proclaimed blabbermouth Dave Packer decides
to take matters into his own hands by committing
the entire grade to silence, except for
three-word responses to adults.
Maud Flynn is known at the orphanage for her
impertinence, so when the charming Miss Hyacinth
and her sister choose Maud to take home with
them, the girl is as baffled as anyone. It seems
the sisters need Maud to help stage elaborate
séances for bereaved, wealthy patrons. As Maud is
drawn deeper into the deception, playing her role
as a "secret child," she is torn between her need
to please and her growing conscience -- until a
shocking betrayal makes clear just how heartless
her so-called guardians are.
This intriguing book examines the role Homo
sapiens have had on the natural world and
nature's response to the growth of mankind.
Readers will also learn about the impact of
technological developments, such as dams, canals
and nuclear energy. Weisman discusses the killer
instinct associated with the human species using
examples like the African paradox. The book
concludes by exploring how organisms would be
affected if Homo sapiens became obsolete, and the
legacy humans would leave behind.
Brand new arrangements of Latin American
favorites and original compositions inspired on
styles such as son, merengue and swing. Contains
sing-along songs, tongue-twisters and activity
songs. Great for kids who are learning Spanish as
a second language. In this playful musical
journey to Latin America, they bring us the music
that Latin parents, grandparents and teachers
sing with their children. You will hear new
renditions of traditional songs to sing along and
dance, and a few tongue twisters with a twist.
After the death of her mother and father, Adelita
is badly mistreated by her stepmother and
stepsisters until she finds her own true love at
a grand fiesta.
Alístate al ser un gallardo y joven caballero
cristiano, estás a punto de viajar miles de
kilómetros a Tierra Santa para defenderla y
luchar por tu fe. Pero lograrías ser un cruzado?
El corazón de piedra verde es una obra
deslumbrante por la inagotable riqueza de
conocimientos que revela su autor, por la
vivacidad con que recrea el pasado de un
continente y por la nobleza de sus propósitos. A
lo largo de sus tres partes -"Los fantasmas",
"Los dioses sanguinarios" y "Fe sin blasfemia"-
Salvador de Madariaga, logra ofrecer una imagen
verosímil del contraste de dos mundos muy
dispares, y mostrar la conmoción que la Conquista
produjo en los corazones de España y América
